Re: 1.6.0 commit dialog

I absolutely agree that using Alt-O as an accelerator key for the OK
button in the commit dialog was more usable AND intuitive. Perhaps
this is a minor point but the point if underlining the accelerator key
is a clue to the user that the button can be actuated without reaching
for the mouse by holding down the Alt key and pressing the accelerator
key. Leaving it in is a good thing for usability speed of execution.
I will start using the Ctrl-Enter button but the point is that we had
to ask this question; wasting your time and ours. Ctrl-Enter is not
in the least intuitive.

Since it was already in, it would seem to the me that the easiest
thing for the developer was to LEAVE it in. Was there some overriding
reason for taking the time to remove it?

On the surface it seems like a brain-dead thing to have done.
